    This is a nice bread pudding. I have to admit I used the recipe as a base and made some changes. I doubled it...used 1 qt of 1/2 & 1/2 and 5 whole eggs. I also used large croissants for the bread. I think one large croissant might be close to 2 slices of French bread. I baked it in water bath as stated but didn't need to bake as long as directed. As soon as it was crusty on top and firm and knife inserted came out moist but not wet and eggy.... My husband loved it! Thanks. Oh. I left out the raisins because our fig tree was producing and we just wanted the fig taste.... Thank you.
